Structured training sessions

Structured training sessions take place on Thursday evenings. Many sessions take place at the Morrison's playing fields at Dallerie, on the all-weather Astroturf pitch or on the grass. Forthcoming training sessions are shown in the table below; the meeting point varies but the start time is always 6.45 pm.

Thursday Training March 2019

The aim has been to create a varied programme which will help target and improve different aspects of running fitness each week. Sessions will focus on developing speed, strength or stamina through the use of various interval sets and will include a general progression through the weeks as fitness and ability improve.

Regardless of the distance or event you are aiming for running intervals should be a key element to a training programme, in conjunction with your usual weekly miles. These sessions are suitable for all runners as the intervals are based on time and effort rather than absolute distance or speed, and will be structured to allow everyone to run at their own pace without feeling left behind.

Detailed explanations of each session will be made available in advance of each week’s training including a full break down of what we are doing, why we are doing it and variations on some sessions to make them suitable for all ability levels.
